Episode 32: The Bad One

We are extremely back this week with a weird and wild episode that is sort of about video games. José has the rundown on the Tokyo Game Show and Scott has run the numbers on Doom for the Switch. Welcome to Hell! Also discussed: Monster Hunter: World, Arika EX, Zone of the Enders: Mars, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, Left Alive

Duration: 01:10:50

Episode 31: Nintendoes What Nintendon't

Who needs Blast Processing anyway? This week, we're all Nintendo all the time. The Switch smartphone app got a much needed update (but it's still the worst), the NES Classic will be back again in 2018 for all of you opportunistic scalpers out there, and Nintendo's most recent Direct showed off some stuff and also things. Oh, and Mario has nipples, which is dope. Also discussed: N/A

Duration: 01:23:59

Episode 30: Throwing Shaders

Not much going on this week, but you better believe that Justin's got the lowdown on Destiny 2. Should you get it? Probably. Everyone else already has. Don't you want to be like everyone else, loser? Also José gives some thoughts on Code Vein and we talk about Rockstar's LA Noire remaster for PS4, Xbox One, and, very surprisingly, Switch. Also discussed: N/A

Duration: 01:11:27

Episode 29: Miss Nindependent

Goldeneye turned 20 years old and we're all dying, but Nintendo showed a slew of independent titles coming to the Switch in the near future, so we'll forget about our mortality for now. Also discussed: Catherine 2(?), Capcom's Puzzle Fighter

Duration: 01:44:32

Episode 28: Owen Wilson's House

Do you want to shoot weird animals as an effed up super raccoon? That's pretty specific, but BioMutant is just right for you. We talk about the brave, new IP as well as remakes galore and another Destiny dump. There's also another visit from them Taste Buds! Also discussed: Injustice 2, Monster Hunter: World, Secret of Mana, Yakuza

Duration: 01:36:18

Duration: 01:39:11

Episode 26: Ow, My Bowls!

The boys are at it again, and now with less news than ever! José gives some deets about the upcoming Gundam Versus beta, Nintendo is being sued by Gamevice over the Switch's modular design, and some guy really wants eSports in the 2024 Olympics (for the children). Then we get a visit from the Taste Buds AKA the new and improved FLAVOR BOYS™™™™™! It's a doozy! Also discussed: Probably penises

Duration: 01:26:59

Episode 25: Chuck

Do you guys like Persona? For the love of God I hope you like Persona. This week, Justin heads up the podcast while José blathers incessantly about Persona. There's also a lot of what some people would call "fucking around." It's gooooooooood! Also discussed: .hack//G.U. Last Recode, Street Fighter: Anniversary Collection, Persona, Persona, Persona, Persona, Persona

Duration: 06:36:42

Episode 24: The Title Is Colon The Title Was

Brace yourself for our worst episode yet, thanks to Scott. (Don't worry, he's the one writing this.) Did he edit out a five minute argument about José looking at him funny? Probably. Did we still talk about video games? Mostly. Justin played a lot of Fortnite and he goes into the interesting intricacies, followed by some talk about GTA VI and Nintendo crushing it. Still worth a listen. Also discussed: Dying Light, Overwatch League, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Pokémon Go Fest

Duration: 01:32:48

Episode 23: Here's The Thing

In an episode steeped in irony and filled with mood swings, we find what matters most: our hearts; our thick, juicy hearts. We talk about the losers upset about a woman being the next Doctor in Doctor Who, then the next entries in a few of TellTale's episodic games. We then take a trip to the José Block ("You've Been Naughty!" Ohhh Yeahhh!) where he tells us about a plethora of fighting games, before we go right back to mocking the losers upset about a woman playing the next Doctor in...

Episode 22: Capcomplaints

The New Nintendo 3DS is dead, but Metal Gear is 30 years old (and also pretty much dead). Steam banned a bunch of cheating punks. Microsoft is bringing the Xbox One X to Gamescom 2017 and we're sure at least someone is excited. José has opinions about Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite. Also discussed: Crackdown 3, Days Gone

Duration: 02:17:57

Episode 21: Dr. Manhattan, DDS

Back with some actual news this week, there's only about six hours worth of LoZ: Breath of the Wild talk, followed by Friday the 13th: The Games list of ban-worthy offenses, the reveal of Doomfist, Monster Hunter fun, and leaks and teases galore! We hope you're ready to hear the word "datamine" a few too many times! Also discussed: Star Wars Battlefront II, Platinum Games, NES Emulator on the Nintendo Switch

Duration: 02:23:35

Episode 20: The Debil, He Never Die

It's an incredibly Nintendo-centric episode this week as José and Scott both got Switches and the SNES Classic was announced. After raving about Breath of the Wild, we go through the list of games on the SNES Classic and discuss what we consider to be omissions. It's a real something or other!

Duration: 01:51:48

Episode 19: Feliz Cumpleañ(64)os

In a post-E3, light news week, let Justin tell you about the upcoming Monster Hunter World; Scott tell you about the short, but sweet Beyond Good & Evil 2 tech demo; and José tell you about the .hack//G.U. remaster trilogy. We may also wax poetic about the Nintendo 64 days after its 21st birthday. Hey, baby, it's good! Also discussed: Nothing

Duration: 01:30:51

Episode 18: Batter Up

Scott is back from vacation and we have a lot of catching up to do! We're breaking down E3 presser by presser with excruciating detail (not really). Hype, disappointment, moderate surprises: E3 had it all!

Duration: 02:37:01

Episode 15: This Just Ing

José? Sick. Scott? Sad. Justin? Perfect as always. Scott took a lesser role this episode while José manned the helm to talk about Overwatch's anniversary, the strange Mario x Rabbids crossover, and everyone's favorite, game delays. We'll be back to normal next week, probably, and if not, shut up.

Duration: 02:37:22

Episode 14: FERGIE'S WIFE!?

The day has finally come that we can put our favorite Sonic the Hedgehog fan art into the game, so get ready for weed, penises, and swastikas. Microsoft reclaimed their trademark for the canceled Scalebound, so maybe they'll actually come out with a game...any game. Justin is ready to do everything all over again with Destiny 2. We also yell about meats and cheeses. It's good. Also discussed: Life is Strange (2), Assassin's Creed, Far Cry 5, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, LEGO Marvel...
